Katie is the new Assistant Youth Director. She and her husband Elijah live in Ottawa, Kansas. They were married in Lighthouse Church in April 2019. During their engagement, they started attending Lighthouse Church and became members. In the past, Elijah has volunteered as a Small Group Leader here at Lighthouse and plans to continue to volunteer in the youth ministry.

Katie works at Baker University as the Department Assistant & Events Coordinator in the Music and Theatre department. She has a bachelor's degree in human resource management from Ottawa University.

Katie's hobbies include spending time with her family, going to concerts, eating great food, going to the lake, country swing dancing, and sitting around talking "solving life's problems".

One of her favorite quotes is by Victoria Erickson; "If you inherently long for something, become it first. If you want gardens, become the gardener. If you want love, embody love. If you want mental stimulation, change the conversation. If you want to fill your world with artists, begin to paint. If you want to be valued, respect your own time. If you want to live ecstatically, find the ecstasy within yourself. This is how to draw it in, day by day, inch by inch."
